Sweet sixteen

Hello again!
I thought it was about time I updated this blog.....
Life has been challenging lately mainly due to my back problem and carpal tunnel in my hands but I'll get through it :)
A few challenges I should have told you about earlier although they run for a month so plenty of time to get creating :)
The first one is the mini challenge at Creative Craft World.
The theme is 'ANYTHING GOES' and it can be any project so long as it is smaller than 12"x12"
There is a fabulous prize to be won and the winner is chosen by the Design Team.
The second challenge is also at Creative Craft World and it's the Beat the Christmas Rush one.
If you'd like to get ahead with your Christmas cards this year then this challenge is for you!
I also have a card to share today.
It was my lovely daughter's 16th birthday last week and this is the card I made her.
Very quick and simple.
It was also my hubby's birthday too but he had to make do with a bought card :o

The papers are MME 'On the bright side' 6x6 pad and the 16 is cut out with the Silhouette Cameo.
I covered some chipboard with matching paper and cut out a heart with a Sizzix die.
The font is MTF cupcake.
Although I've been quiet on the blogging front all that will change over the weekend!
I've had the opportunity to play with the new March scrap kit (on sale from 1st March at CCW)
and I have 3 new scrapbook pages to share.
I'll upload them over the next few days and as Saturday sees the new scrap map challenge I'll also have a page to share for that too.
Thank you all for your support lately, I've had some lovely emails and comments and I appreciate them all.
Take care,
Sarah xx
